Optiv Security Receives Customer Service Leadership Award for Healthcare Managed Cybersecurity Services

-- Global leader stands out in solutions strategy, technical expertise, and end-to-end capabilities, according to independent analyst firm’s report --


Denver – October 3, 2019 – Optiv Security, a security solutions integrator delivering end-to-end cybersecurity solutions across the globe, today announced it has received Frost & Sullivan’s 2019 Customer Service Leadership Award in healthcare managed cybersecurity services. According to the independent analyst firm’s report, Optiv stood out for its comprehensive, end-to-end approach. The report commends Optiv for working hand-in-hand with hospital IT teams to plan, build and run cybersecurity programs that optimize and operationalize healthcare security systems to drive business- and patient-based outcomes.


“By bringing together people, process, and technology, our teams play a pivotal role in alleviating the long-standing pain points for our clients in the healthcare industry,” said Anthony Diaz, division vice president and general manager, global emerging services, Optiv. “We address legacy issues within hospital environments, such as budgetary limits, the skills shortage and staff fatigue, and over-complex, outdated infrastructures by approaching security from the inside-out where organization- and industry-specific risk drives security spend, not the fear of external threats and vulnerabilities.”


Optiv’s comprehensive understanding and implementation of cybersecurity best practices positions the company’s managed security services as a leader in the industry landscape and within various verticals, including healthcare. Frost & Sullivan points out that while there are many highly respected security service providers, Optiv’s end-to-end advisory services, depth of technical expertise, and trusted partnerships with the world’s leading technology vendors allows the organization to revolutionize the cybersecurity business model and serve as a guide for healthcare clients.


“Healthcare security professionals are inundated with an endless stream of alerts, as are security teams across all verticals. However, healthcare is a critical infrastructure sector with specific challenges, such as exposed and vulnerable OT systems and the possibility of very severe impacts from ransomware. Historically, it has been slow to keep up with cybersecurity, just as cybersecurity hasn’t kept pace with evolving business models,” said Diaz. “We’re leading the way by completely customizing services and solutions to fit each organization’s specific risk-profile and business objective, allowing healthcare leaders to realize the benefits cybersecurity operationalization has on both revenue and hospital cyber resiliency.”
